are looking for any an opportunity to strike the united states and our interests. megyn: 20 minutes ago i spoke with dana rohrabacher, he was in that briefing yesterday. tony life, congressman dana rohrabacher from california. a member of the house foreign relations committee. he was in the briefing yesterday. welcome to the program. >> thank you very much. megyn: i want to get your reaction to those comments. the secretary of state, hillary clinton, tried to offer some intel on where they think this investigation is now. what can you share with us in terms of what you learned? >> by and large, it was a very top-secret briefing on trent briefing of classified information was being given out. what is most important is the attitude behind that information. as we can see, the president is bending over backwards red as he has been since the beginning of his administration. not to blame radical islam, not to give them some sort of hateful or evil intentions, but giving them the benefit of the doubt. this response to this attack, this murder of american diplomats, on 9/11, it's no doubt that it
to the current prime minister of israel. the united states must keep israel out as our most important ally in the middle east to save time doing what is right for the united states'. >> the polls show that people did not like the way he responded, the way he jumped into the middle of that catastrophe to score cheap political point. he is gaining nothing on the foreign policy side. >> charles speaks of a superpower in retreat. this is about barack obama right now, this question. >> i have listened to a lot of foreign policy experts from previous administration's talk about this. everybody seemed to agree that we are in for a very rough ride here and there are very limited things that we can do about it. you do not want to have people in our embassies die. >> on that question, is the barack obama administration covering something up? was it a planned attack? >> it was a terrorist attack them been giving it a label hardly matters. it is an attack that we should of known about. we should protect every consulate and every embassy that we are in. we have a 16,000-person and the sea consulate's s
in the united states. a big committee that reviews this stuff. the treasury secretary heads it up. when that committee was reviewing this deal with, congress went absolutely nuts over it. in the end, that deal did not go through. that was in 2005. china was not allowed to come in and buy that company. now they are trying good. they are in the process of trying to buy a canadian oil company. but again, the committee on foreign investments in the u.s. has some jurisdiction here because the canadian company does a lot of business in our gulf of mexico. this is a chinese government-owned giant oil company trying to buy american oil infrastructure. think the deal is going to go through this time? it's a $15 billion oil deal. you think it's going to go through? it didn't in 2005. how about this new version? since the last time the united states said no, cnooc is famous for going into business with iran. they are in the process of developing a huge iranian natural gas field. i know it's china and china doesn't follow the same rules as everybody else, but why would they get into bed with the ro
barack obama president of the united states of america. >> this is america's choice. >>> we'd like to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world to this, the democratic national convention in charlotte, north carolina. everyone here is waiting to hear what bill clinton will say about president obama tonight as well as his own time in the white house. but another speech tonight could make or break the democrats' hope for keeping control of the united states senate. elizabeth warren is challenging republican senator scott brown in massachusetts. coming up in this hour, we'll hear praise of bill clinton from someone you might not expect. >> coming from the republicans, vice presidential candidate paul ryan sat down with cnn's piers morgan to compare the clinton and obama presidencies. the two presidents have not always been close, obviously. our chief national correspondent john king covered the clinton white house for us. >> these two presidents, the former president and president obama are more than at peace now. you may say both men share a little bit of numbers
of this campaign to win for the president and for the senator brown. his close ally in the united states senate. >> e.j., we just got a piece of an videotape in, an interview he did with nbc's ron allen. i want to play it for you and get your reaction afterwards. here it is. >> one thing you seem to have trouble convincing people of, you are the person that cares about middle class people, people are struggling. they don't see in your background and your comments the kind of empathy and understanding that could really solve their problems. >> i think people had the chance who watched our republican convention to see the lives i've had a chance to touch during my life. to understand that i served as a pastor of a congregation with people of all different backgrounds and economic circumstances. that i care very deeply about the american people and people of different socioeconomic circumstances. and i think throughout this campaign as well, we've talked about my record in massachusetts. don't forget, i got everybody in my state insured. 100% of the kids in our state have health insurance. i don't
was only 5. my people were revolutionary refugees. they had to be fed by the united states government and housed by the united states government. i know what poverty is. i've been up through it. >> jennifer: george romney, a republican through and through who was not, like his son trapped in the bubble of wealth and privilege and who freely admits his family was helped by the u.s. government's social programs in their time of need. now many modern-day republicans are running away from romney's statement today. people like connecticut republican senate candidate linda mcmahon who said today "i disagree with governor romney's insinuation that 47% of americans believe they're victims who must depend on the government for their care." mcmahon may not want to suffer the political backlash. but she like many other republicans and fox news commentators, she has used the 47% line before. here she is earlier in this very campaign. >> i would like to see everyone pay their fair share. 47% of the people today don't pay
no longer function in what the united states has become. >> that issue about the legitimacy of the president and trying to other rise him, i found myself in reading the right-wing arguments, it's not just stuff from the blog world. it's definitely relatively respected republican pollsters starting to get on board. it made me start to think about let's say the election goes the way the polls say it's going to go. aren't they laying the groundwork to say he stole the lek? that his election is illegitima illegitimate? whether or not you think he's foreign, he couldn't possibly be a legitimate president for a second term. >> they are never going to acknowledge he's legitimately president. he can serve the full eight years. they are not going to acknowledge he was legitimate. but the question becomes, can it remain viable as a party? and the real problem that the republicans have, i mean the polls come after the fact. the polls are a reflection of what's going on in the united states. the real problem that the republicans have in this campaign is, they have a terrible candidate. mitt romney is no
with today. rowe talked about putting these people back to work and so has the president of the united states. when president obama tried to sell his jobs bill last year over the refusal of the republican congress, he talked about the kinds of people who would get those kinds of jobs. >> it's a bill that would put people back to work, rebuilding america. repairing our roads, repairing our bridges, repairing our schools. it would lead to jobs for concrete workers like the ones here at hilltop, jobs for construction workers and masons, carp carpenters, electricians, engineers, ironworkers. put folks back to work. >> mike rowe said part of the problem was training. >> jobs depend on opportunity and training. over and over, that's what i hear, we need more opportunity and we need better training. >> once again, there is a candidate who believes in job training, who understands we need more vocational training. >> one of the, i believe, mistakes we've made 20, 30 years ago was to start de-emphasizes vocational education. right now we've got shortages of folks in fields that need technical training
next, few people know more about the inner workings of the united states supreme court than jeffrey toobin. he will join us next to talk about the battle over obama care voter i.d. laws and much more. that's next. you don't want to miss it. health matters to all of us. that's why lysol has started a mission for health. with new mom programs, lysol healthy habits initiatives in schools and disaster relief efforts. when you use lysol at home, you'll know you're a part of something bigger. for healthy tips and more, visit [ nervous ] i hope no one recognizes us... think these disguises will... no. [ male announcer ] salty. sweet. >> freedom is under assault here. i mean they're taking away american's freedom on one of the most important decisions that americans make. >> pragmatic effect is the decision is there will be a black cloud over any prospect of economic recovery in the united states. >> jennifer: whatever. based on their level of vitriol you would think that rick perry and michele
the bus. now we've seen a very different timeline from israel and the united states from netanyahu. netanyahu says within months iran will have gone beyond the point of no return. american intelligence believes there's more time. where do we stand now with israel and is mitt romney -- >> we stand -- >> that the president has thrown israel under the bus? >> well, first of all, the term throwing israel under the bus is really a remarkable -- you know, it's an unbelievably cynical explosivetive term that is also a lie. it is a fundamental lie. and mitt romney ought to be ashamed of himself for continuing to say it when he knows that prime minister netanyahu and defense minister ehud barak have both said this administration has the strongest security and military cooperation with israel it has ever had. ever. and the president has taken steps to put america in a position to deal with iran with whatever eventuality may be necessary, and i mean whatever eventuality may be necessary. the president made that crystal clear in his speech at the united nations. and, yesterday, prime minister
on tuesday september 4 with michelle obama, the first lady of the united states. on the fifth, we have president bill clinton and so many others speaking here. our great keynote speaker, the mayor of san antonio, and so many others, who will be taking to the stage to talk about the vision and the message that the president and his campaign has for the next four years. the stage and screen is behind me will allow them to deliver that message in a visually engaging way, both to the thousands of people here in the arena and to the millions who will be watching at home or online. today is really exciting for me. i started working on convention planning almost three years ago, believe it or not. and moved here, as i said, last june to oversee this process. it is hard for me to thank so many people who have worked tirelessly on this. i would like to thank first and foremost our staff, the staff of the democratic national convention committee, and our partners at the host committee here in charlotte for the incredibly hard work they did to make today and to make next week possible. it really
to anybody -- >> who? >> barack obama, the president of the united states. >> because romney did at a really opportune time. >> but he's going to all of these places, no time for netanyahu, but time for "the view," time for -- >> no time for netanyahu. >> that was good. >> i know. i know. >> wally from "leave it to beaver" was in that. >> was jerry mathers. >> no, that was the beave. >> asked about the newly released tax returns. >> all right. >> take a look. >> governor romney on "60 minutes" was asked, does he think it's fair that he pays a lower tax rate than somebody who is making $50,000 a year? and he said yes. i think it's fair and i also think that's the way you get economic growth. i've got a different vision about the way we grow an economy. i think you grow the economy from the middle out not from the top down. >> let me ask you, jon meacham, do you think the president was more presidential on the view or on "entertainment tonight"? >> i think "the view." >> clearly. love the view. >> there's this long tradition of this. remember -- >> fdr on "the view." >> fdr was actually on "in
of the united states, you're president of everybody, for everybody, you have to fight for everybody. i think that's the sentiment that democrats see as being the most problematic for romney. >> the president repeated that on letterman last night, saying, you know, one of the things i learned as president is that you represent everybody, and, indeed, it's a message -- when all this came out even the talk about being a divider and not a uniter i thought about the president on the stage in 2008 in grant park, we have the sound when he talks about the people that didn't vote for him. let's play that sound. >> to those americans who -- whose support i have yet to earn, i may not have won your vote tonight, but i hear your voices, i need your help and i will be your president too. >> i mean, you talk about a lot has been said about the president's comments at a fund-raiser when he talks about people clinging to guns and religion. the take away, the thing he was trying to communicate is those people may not be supporters, may not vote for me, but i've got to try to convince them, part and parcel of
demonstrated a willingness to tackle long- term debt problem of the united states. i think he is prepared to do that and prepared to push through a plan if we make some amount of progress in this election, but i assume he will be a great second-term president. >> i agree with melody, i think the election will be very close, but i believe the president will be reelected, because i do not think this country wants to go back to the policies being advocated by the mitt romney/paul ryan ticket to a place where we're talking about reducing taxes on middle income people. a place where we're reducing regulation in a way that opens us up to the same abuses that got us into the financial crisis that led to the recession we are still climbing out of. i do not think women want to go back to a place where health care choices is something that is problematic. where our environment is at risk, because we do not have an energy policy that recognize the needs for clean, alternative sources of energy. i do not think the country wants to go back to that place. i do a thing when the president reelected, one of the
living there at age five or six there was revolution and they came back to the united states. my dad has to get help. by the way, that is the way america works. >> and joy, there was no welfare program at the time. there was no social security program at the time. there was actually a special bill passed in ago to aid the mormon refugee who came running back across the border having fled from the united states in the first place so that they can continue to practice pologamy in mexico. so it was, even better treatment than any one was getting in the current system. >> did you catch the swanky spray tan? i couldn't look away. it was physical pandering on top of the other pandering? and he didn't explain why he was in mexico which i think would have been helpful information. the insult tour didn't stop on univision. y he then proceeded to use the words illegal aliens in that room. what is he lou dobbs? i don't think he can help himself. i read a piece of an unnamed operative saying that the campaign has the smell of decay. >> new poll shows president obama leading mitt romney on the questi
as the democratic candidate for president of the united states. we have a pretty feisty audience. >> we have so many paul ryan fans. paul ryan, paul ryan, paul ryan! yes! yes, can you feel the love. i bet we have a lot of crimson tide fans, too. roll tide! >> it's all right. we have with us contribute mike barnicle and senior political analyst mark halperin and msnbc political analyst john heilemann, whose cover story for this week's "new york" magazine is on joe biden's role in the campaign. >> what a great cover. >> as we said, later today democrats will kick off their national convention here in north carolina, a state with 15 electoral votes up for grabs this november. president obama won north carolina by a microscopic number of votes in 2008. but a new poll shows the president will have his work cut out for him if he hopes to win here again. mitt romney currently leads the president 47% to 43%. one of the first orders of business will be to adopt the party platform. it echos president obama's call for higher taxes on wealthier americans while backing same-sex marriage and abortion rights. it s
income in the united states, bringing it to the lowest level since 1995. gretch, over to you and peter johnson. >> gretchen: thanks very much. egyptian authorities are seek the death penalty now for seven christians living in the united states. for their part in producing that anti-islamic film that sparked violent protests across the middle east. so do you think that's harsh? well, then there is this, a conservative web site,, reports the u.s. state department could be currently in negotiations with the egyptians to transfer one of their citizens to terrorists back home. that man you've seen, known as the blind sheik, serving a life sentence for his part in the 1993 world trade center bombing. here with more is fox news legal analyst peter johnson, jr. >> hi. >> gretchen: so this is a claim by, fox has not been able to confirm this. state department spokesperson was asked about it yesterday and she denied this transfer might be going on. >> denied. but president morsi raised this issue, president of egypt in the campaign before he became president. so ther
and the united states administration come together to fund adequately all of our worries and state departments throughout the global environment of the world? >> brad, if there was the shift by al qaeda, should the administration have come out with what they said that it was a dopey movie? >> eric tfit their narrative at the time. they wanted the world to believe and americans to believe that the youtube video was the causation for the attack in libya. we know that that is false. what is worse, and the admiral is right, al qaeda is interwoven throughout the arab spring in numerous countries. but what did our president do? he didn't stand up to our enemy. he apologized and gave them the excuse they needed to step up williams, by -- violence by giving credence to the youtube video, which was want the causation of the arab attack. the president spread unrest throughout americans, instead of being a leader and standing up to it. >> if i being, i didn't say they are, i said, are they? what's the probability? how much are they? are they not? that's a legitimate issue for us to have the president, as
for the united states and the things that he's done for humanity, what a credible voice tonight. what a credible voice. as much as he has been through, as much as he was targeted, he can speak from experience and say i never hated those guys. i wanted to get something done, and he did. i thought he spoke very well to the economy tonight too. he made the case about the philosophy of success, about, you know, wealthy people doing a little bit more because they can. i mean, i thought he had a great -- >> i think before you lead the hate part, because he talked about people proud of being -- their kids being born in america, which referred to this is a deeper and different kind of hate. they hated hillary clinton for what she wanted to do. they hated him for what they wanted to do. they hate president obama because of what he wants to do and because of what he is. that's what he was eluding to. which was a different hate than bill clinton. they never asked bill clinton for his birth certificate. so he understands the levels of hate here. as much as they fought hillary and him, they never asked him f
country. this is missouri, this is in the middle of the united states senate campaign. can you bee that's where w t's outrageous: after lisa brown was banned from speaking on the floor after >>> good evening, americans and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. 42 days until the 2012 election and ght days until t first presidential debate. president obama and millions of americans e calling on billnairneo ri ab rs and bring back the union workers. tonight i'm camming out mitt romney for attacking some other working professionals. this is "the ed ow." let's get to work. >> i think goverr romney and a lize the iss and do a lot of teacher bashing. >> the president goes after mitt romney on education. and right on cue, mitt romney goes after the teachers. >> the teachers union has a responsibility to care for the interests of the teachers. >>meve hd and atlanta mayor react to mitt romney's educated mess. >>> scott walker and paul ryan come out against union busting. eugene robinson and bill roden r. whyhe nfl gets whatt paid and on national voter registration day, ten million latino v
of this debate. ultimately the fault line in the united states is not the fault line between the people receiving federal assistance and those who aren't. what we want to do is get people off those things. that status ought to be transitional. and they ought to ultimately move to the point where they are, if you will, taxpayers or they working full time and so forth. that ought to be the debate, and that's what's missing. again, what's missing i actually think from this campaign is not just optimism, but it's a set of ideas on the economy, on the budget, on our role in the world. you can't -- neither candidate is actually putting forward much in the way -- you say an optimistic agenda. i'd also say a positive agenda and have two candidates who are painly counterpunching and they're refraining from putting forward ideas lest they be attacked. this is a very defensive campaign. so you don't say what tax expenditures you'd get rid of. you don't exactly say how you would curtail entitlements. everybody's playing defensive. but what this shows, but not playing offense, you're still on the defensive. b
became president of the united states. the romney/ryan plan, here's the list, folks. cut pell grants for more than nine million students, eliminate head start programs for two million children, and cut $5 billion in title one funding for low-income and special needs students. good plan? republicans want to cut funding for public education because, you see, they have a different plan. >> the great thing about charter schools is if they fail, you close them. you invoke their charter. i believe that difference is one of the reasons charter schools has been able to improve the quality of education of those students who beat their path to the door. >> really? improve? a study showed charter schools are twice as likely to underperform rather than overperform. but who cares when you can make a buck? we don't want to pay attention to stanford. speaking of money, this is the other reason ryan and romney, see i always put ryan's name first because that's really what the conservatives want. the reason why romney and ryan want to slash public education, here it is. >> the teachers unions are abl
of what's going on in the united states. the real problem that the republicans have in this campaign is, they have a terrible candidate. mitt romneis not a good id but potentially even bigger problem is that the electorate does not seem to be buying what the republicans are offering. when romney picked ryan as vice president, i said to my wife, i think romney may have lost the election here. threas i saithas bee picking paul ryan, it opened up that argument of the republican party as extreme and the democrats just pounced on that as you would expect them to do. d the country does not want those extreme aspects of the republican party, those extreme right wing policies. theyo ree 'st us into this trouble both overseas with the war in iraq and also with the economy. and they are not going for it anymore. the republic no longer belies that the way to help middle cls and low-income families is to give more money to the rich. ulvo tidught tt tt rney he decided not to do that. >> i feel like the country republicans people in the middle and on the left want a republican party that's essential
? why do hispanics believe they should be exempt from the united states law? guest: we don't. that's the simple answer. we don't believe hispanics should be exempt from u.s. law. hispanics are law-abiding citizens. we believe we have to deal with the issue of our broken immigration system. the fact is it is broken. we see that recognition not just by folks on the left or the right, not just by democrats or republicans, but by leaders of the business sector, by folks who understand that in order to have a strong economy we've got to figure out a way in which we are leveraging the contributions of immigrants. we want to find ways where we can make sure that our borders are secure and that no one disputes that fact. we have seen a lot of support -- an enormous amount of funding for making sure that. is the that i know folks want to continue to argue for more. we want to have smart borders as well as secure borders. i think we just after the strategic about how we do that. but no one disputes the fact we should have secure borders and that we all should be law- abiding citizens. but we
public investments. our good schools, our universities. medicare, security. and that in the united states when those two have met, when individual initiative has met with a common sacrifice and investment by the nation, that's what's created upward mobility. and the ability to reach the american dream in our society that makes america unique. and i put before the nation the clear choice that we have in this election between a leader in barack obama who will -- who has been doing that, making those investments and will in the future and another leader who would scale back from those investments and therefore i think hinder america's ability to be the land of opportunity going forward for everyone. >> where did you come up with that line of the night? i think it was the best line so far in this convention where you said mitt romney said just ask your old man for money when you want to start a business. you said why didn't i think of that? where did you come up with that great sarcasm? >> what i wanted to do was be optimistic but point out the differences. as the first lady pointed out very
-- but effectively working with all these things is consolidation and renew all the reforming the united states and strengthening our infrastructure. if america gets its act together, especially with respect to the chinese, their respect success. if we are successful, and we will have a lot of influence. i would not said let's forget the world, but look at what we can do to advance our competitive position. host: talking about secretary clinton costs travel to china and u.s.-china relations. thank you. tomorrow, our national affairs columnist and the author of "who is counting?" 7:45 a.m. us at a 30 a.m., ala -- at 8:30 a.m., alan comles. and then aid to egypt in their transition to democracy. your calls starting tomorrow at 7:00 a.m. thank you for joining us.
